On the one hand, requiring all possible permissions by default is convenient for developers.

On the other, developers can forget to remove these permissions, resulting in apps with contradictory privacy policies, and users who believe the apps are highly intrusive. In fact, most apps won't actually use these permissions, so it's better to use least-privilege anyway.

Thanks for the pull request! However, this repository is outdated and no longer the canonical source. I've updated the README.md to explain where the main projects now live.
